Completed a little over 18 miles of this trail and a little over 11 miles of the LSHT. our total was 36 miles on the 30 mile grand loop. this loop has 4 primitive camp sites spaced out about ever 6 miles. most creeks were dried up but the camp near Kelleys Pond camp had a spring fed creek that had some good water. If you're planning on doing this 30 mile loop I would highly suggest that you stash some water for yourself or bring a good pump filter. We used the MSR pump filter for the mud puddles and the sawyer squeeze filter on the cleaner water. Noticed 2 asps so beware. Those furry caterpillars will sting you. At night the coyotes, owls, and crickets filled the air with a beautiful Symphony. one section of the LLCL has a beautiful area of dwarf Palmettos as far as you can see. The best Thanksgiving ever! #optoutside
